12:01 pm
everyone to immediately evacuate all buildings and get as far away as possible. a spokeswoman with the university of texas says that the school received a call around 8:35 from a man claiming with al qaeda. the man said that he had placed bombs all over the campus that would go off in 90 minutes. all buildings were cleared by 9:50. no bombs have been found. north dakota state university also ordered everyone off its campus within half an hour after receiving a bomb threat just before 10:00 a.m. it is not known if the two incidents are related. hello. i'm jc hayward. thanks for being with us today. protest is spreading throughout the muslim world. there's more reaction to an american made movie that ridicules the religion and the prophet muhammad. danielle nottingham is at the state department where officials are keeping a close watch. >> reporter: protesters hurmed rocks at -- hurled rocks at

12:04 pm
today in the courtroom after judge mary grace o'brien denied a request for justin wolfe's release. the courtroom wasn't even big enough for all the people who came to support justin wolfe, people who believe he's innocent and spent 11 years on death row for no reason. he was convicted of murder for hire back in 2001 for the shooting death of daniel petrole. both wolfe and petrole war marijuana dealers. the person who shot and killed petrole was owen barber. barber testified that justin wolfe hired him to kill daniel petrole. but since then owen barber has recanted that testimony and even told a federal judge that the only reason he said wolfest hired him to do it was to avoid the death penalty himself. that evidence convinced the judge along with other evidence that he found that prosecutors
12:05 pm
withheld information and evidence that would have helped wolfe. the judge threw out the conviction and the death sentence. the case went to a federal appeals court which found the same. so now we're back here in prince william county court where the defense had a motion to set justin wolfe -- release him on bond. the commonwealth's attorney who has the case argued that he should not be set free. he said he might be a flight risk and that he had been a drug kingpin and there was no reason to release him, that the federal court hearings were federal and were separate and that now we're in the commonwealth. the judge deciding against the defense. it was a crushing blow for justin wolfst de es -- for justin wolfe's family today. >> i find it shocking. would you think with all of the evidence, judge jackson did a thorough investigation of this case as did judge king in the 4th circuit.
12:06 pm
a panel of three judges. there's been numerous judges, high ranking officials wrote an amicus brief who also looked at this case and found it to be an egregious error and yet that was still not -- did not bring my son home. >> reporter: the defense inargued that justin wolfe is a changed man and he went through the most intensive program ever sitting on death row for 11 years for a crime he didn't commit, watching friends that he made go to their deaths. but the judge didn't go that waysiding with the prosecution. we'll be back here next month. that's when a new trial of justin wolfe is set. i'm peg gi fox reporting -- peggy fox reporting live. back to you. >> thank you. a judge sentenced an alexandria man to 30 years in prison for plotting a suicide bomb attack on the u.s.
